SPDisposeCheck tool has been official announced

I have discussed problems with missing dispose for SPWeb and SPSite objects earlier on my blog (e.g. here and here) and Roger has provided a guidance for specific coding patterns which can cause problems such problems.

In the last couple of month I have been involved in a project driven by Roger Lamb to create and test a tool which allows to identify such incorrect coding in a compiled dll. The outcome of this project is the SPDisposeCheck tool which has now been officially anounced and which should be available in a couple of month.

See here for details:


  1. Any idea when this tool will be out?  i recently ran across a client project where it could have REALLY come in handy.


  2. Hi Tony,

    a release date has not been announced yet.

    Expect a couple more months.
